Default Need Name Ideas for Dog Daycare Business!

I know there are some really creative people on this site so I am looking forward to the responses!
To give a quick summary, I am working on going to a training school this fall. I have already been training for a couple years now and working at a dog daycare as the manager.
Now I am developing a business of my own, that will include modern type dog daycare in a downtown area, boarding, training, grooming (hopefully a couple do-it-yourself tubs as well) and a retail area with quality foods and supplies. (recommendations in this area is welcomed as well!)
We are looking for at least 5000 sq. feet and will be a cageless daycare/boarding fac.
I hope to have a agility site set up and available to those needing additional practice time and training. And of course, I want to promote disc as much as possible, but those things will be a little farther down the road.

So I am looking for any suggestions/ideas for a name, products or services you love or wish were available in your area!

Bring it on!

Thanks! I really appreciate the reply! I really want something with a modern twist. There is a great place in Seattle called Downtown Dogs and has a great modern style. Since I will also be in a downtown area that is being revitilized and is growing in leaps and bounds, I am looking to cater to people moving from out of state that are used to a lot dog friendly places.
<u>Canines Unlimited </u>was an original idea, but that was for training only. Balanced Canines was also an idea, but again not really a modern feel or portraying what I am looking for.
I could also go with a more rural approach, since it will be in a western state. So something like <u>Rock Creek Canines</u>, Rocky Mountain Canine Club ?? More suggestions please!

Wishing you the very best in your endeavor. There is nothing better than having a business that you love to do. Please post updates. Don't have any ideas for a name tho. I have a friend in the kennel/day care business. She tries to keep her prices for day care reasonable for all to be able to bring their dogs to daycare.

Thank you so much for the replies! I am taking all suggestions in consideration and making a list!
Here is some info on the area to help with any ideas!

Downtown, Billings Starts Here!
WELCOME TO BILLINGS, MONTANA

Billings is nicknamed the Magic City because of its rapid growth from its founding as a railroad town in 1882. Billings is named for Frederick H. Billings, president of the Northern Pacific Railroad and is the largest city in Montana with a population of approximately 101,000 within the city limits and another 40,000 in surrounding Yellowstone County. Billings trade market area is geographically one of the largest in the nation drawing approximately 250,000 people from Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota and North Dakota. It is the retail, medical, convention and educational center serving a 500-mile radius.

SCENIC…HISTORIC

The City of Billings is located on the Yellowstone River and is surrounded by dramatic rims. The Beartooth and Pryor Mountain ranges and high sweeping plains provide panoramic views in every direction. Billings serves as a gateway for Yellowstone National Park, the Little Bighorn National Battlefield and Pompeys Pillar which bears the signature of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark 1806 expedition.

ENTERTAINMENT, ARTS, CULTURE…

Billings is the region's cultural hub. Performing arts theaters, the symphony, opera, history and art museums, a zoo, historic district and numerous arts and crafts galleries offer a rich cultural experience for residents and visitors. Fine, ethnically-diverse cuisine, espresso and sidewalk cafes, boutique specialty shopping, bookshops, antique stores, and an abundance of events invite you to stroll and experience.

Expanding on some of the names offered:

OK-9 Corral, Dog Day Care

Red Rover Come Over!

Given the state of your intended business, I'd not use "Doggie" in the title. I'd be light hearted but crisp. (Don't infer pink, ruffles or dog clothes).

Exciting plans.

Have you researched how receptive Billings is going to be? From what I remember about Montana, you'd have a larger clientel in Missoula or possibly even Bozeman (bigger universities, bigger wallets.) I'd do a lotta market research in Billings before I invested much. You're right by a res, you're in ranch country/wilderness country. Your main clients might be people on their way to Yellowstone because there's not a lot you can do with a dog in the Park. The difficulty here would be that they would need to exit at Billings, too, to pick up the pooch. Maybe you could run a shuttle service? We'll deliver your dog x days later at x location for x $.

When will you be moving to Billings?
